Fabulous hotel with absolutely stupendous views along the Chagres River. The sights and sounds of the rainforest are all around and just walking from your room to the main part of the hotel you will see small mammals and many interesting birds. We were fortunate to be put in the new block on the 7th floor and what a view... More

We stayed one night on a layover from a cruise and our flight back to the USA. The resort was pleasant but looks tired and falls short of its potential. The resort has seen better days but we found our room spacious and clean. The large hammock on the balcony was a treat. The food was good, especially the buffets... More

We stayed 2 nights, with 3 kids. The rooms are nice, hammocks on large balconies were a nice touch. This hotel does NOT overlook the canal, just the river (to my surprise). Pool is not as spectacular as photos. We did the over-priced aerial rainforest/animal tour, saw nothing. The museum/zoo was not worth the money either. Yet the free night... More

Outstanding views of the Chagres River and the rainforest about 20kms from Panama City. River view rooms have a hammock on the terrace, which is great for just watching the world go by. Lots of activities (not badly priced) including walking in the rainforest, aerial tram, kayaking and a night safari, which was fun. You can also explore around the... More

The good: Great location. Great activities such as free bird walks, nature walks, and night-time drive arounds to look for animals. Good paid-for activities such as kayaking, fishing, hiking. Nice big rooms with good views and a very comfy hammock. We had no problems with mold or smells, and the air conditioner & dehumidifier worked very well. The guides and... More

On-site activities company through which you can schedule aerial tram rides, nature walks, visits to Indian villages, and boat trips. Several restaurants to choose from on the property.

We were part of the Caravan Tours group that stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Our Accommodations were wonderful. Everything about this resort is just so beautiful. Very scenic. Our room was gorgeous. Our room #400 was on the 4th floor (top floor) just off the lobby. We had no problem of musty smell. The room had a very... More

Upon arrival at the resort one is struck by the beauty of the lobby and view through the trees of the Chagres River. The Resort setting is lovely. I spent two nights at this hotel in March during the dry season. The smell of mold was so intense it nearly knocked me over when I opened the door to the... More

Gamboa Rainforest Resort is in all the books, which is why we decided to book there, especially since it is in the rainforest close to Panama City. The good news was that the large resort - which looked rather Disney-like on the web site - was manageable and comfortable. The service staff were very helpful, the rooms were large and... More
